Your stats and mine have been on my mind lately. It could be because I’ve been spending a little extra time there to see who’s been stopping by from what media source. I was planning to write a post about ways to use stats for blog promotion, but just as I was about to I came across this one.
Great Find: Blog Promotion: What Do Your Stats Tell You? at Random Bytes
Type of article: Blogging basics–a look a stats
Target Audience: Anyone who’s interested in the reader response to a new blog started from an existing web site.
Content: Pam Blackstone, professional journalist and speaker, started Random Bytes to expand the interest in her Internet search site Weblens. In this well-written, quick read, she compares the audience of the blog to that of the search site and wonders at the differences, some that new bloggers might not pay attention to–browsers, screen resolution, and operating systems. Pam uses the data to extrapolate profile information about her readers. If you want to see what conclusions she reaches, click the screenshot below.
Thanks, Pam, for a reminder of the wealth of information in those stats.
